Vidushi & Amir Rana
When my Father-in-law was suddenly diagnosed with IPF ( Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) idiopathic meaning the cause of condition not known. We did not know what to do. We froze in front of the Doctor. We had lots of questions.. As to why, how. But there was no answer.
Luckily for us we had met Karan and Aanchal two months back for an EO event. That was the first time we had heard of Texas Medical Concierge. My husband called Karan immediately. He was most helpful. He immediately found ways to arrange for an Air ambulance, he managed to take appointment with the best Pulmonologist in India. While we were all benumb. His company TMC took over.
My husband flew with his dad and mom to Delhi in the Air ambulance. There was an ambulance waiting at Delhi Airport. We were rushed to Fortis Vasant Kunj hospital. TMC team of doctors were waiting for us at the hospital. We should mention TMC’s very special Dr. Himanshu here. My father-in-law’s medical files were already digitized and the doctor knew exactly what he was dealing with. It was a heartening time for the whole family. We were all witnessing a man we loved slipping away.
My husband was in denial, he wanted to do everything he could to save his father. TMC managed to get a second, a third opinion for us. They managed to get us appointment with the top Pulmonologist in India. After that we were still not satisfied. Karan then managed to get a tele conference with the Pulmonologist at John Hopkins.They tried everything that was humanly possible for us. The best part was their Dr. Himanshu, was always with us to make us understand everything that was being done.
We lost my Father in law. Because the disease had already reached a very advanced stage. We were all devastated. It was the day of Holi. India was closed.
Karan and Aanchal along with their two sons and mom rushed to the hospital. They then managed to arrange for the embalming, they managed flight tickets for 20 odd relatives and friends who had gathered at the hospital. TMC helped with everything to bring the body back to Nepal.
We can never thank Aanchal, Karan, Himanshu and all the staffs at TMC for relentlessly working for us day and night.
